Fired Apprentice 2012 candidate Maria O’Connor blasts "bitch" Jane McEvoy

Jane McEvoy (The Apprentice 2012)

Axed Apprentice 2012 candidate Maria O’Connor has insisted that it should've been [tag]Jane McEvoy[/tag] who was fired last night, even blaming the Irish businesswoman for her falling asleep.

Maria was left red faced on last night's show after being caught napping during the task in the car.

But Maria blamed Jane, explaining how she had woke her up at 4AM in the house that the Apprentice candidates share in order to dry her hair.

Speaking to The Sun, Maria didn't hold back, complaining: "Jane should have gone because she chose the wrong product. She's a bitch."

She added: "I only fell asleep because she was banging about at 4am doing her hair and I didn't go to bed until midnight."

Reflecting back on her experience, Maria continued: "The best thing was getting to meet Alan Sugar.

"Look, he can be an ar*ehole or a lovely bloke, it's up to him — at the end of the day he's still made millions and I respect that."

The Apprentice 2012 continues next Wednesday on BBC One.
